24 oz can = $1.59 here in Durham NC

24oz x 2 poured into my 52oz Coors Light plastic pitcher i stole from Pizza Hut years ago and drink directly from....i make Youtube vids with it.

also shotgunned one..it tasted the same as drinking it normally...slightly skunky..like a hint of Heineken skunk but not bad.

Smooth going down...works better very cold as most malt liquors do..

Its not too bad when it begins to warm up either,it gets slightly sweeter.

If you hate malt liquor....then dont go there.

Golden, brownish beer with a thick, foamy head that dissolves slowly. Smells of sweet corn and musty grain. Taste is super sweet, like sugar water with some hints of adjuncts. None of the musty, metallic flavor you get with some malt liquors. Seriously though, is this blended with corn syrup? It's more like a sweet tea than beer.

Served ice cold in a frosted glass mug. Pours the color of straw with a thick, two finger length white head. Some nice, sticky lacing is left on the side of the glass. Plenty of tiny bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. The beer smells like grains. I can detect the corn in the aroma. There is a nice mild grainy sweetness to this beer. The malt and corn come through with some mild hop bitterness in the back end. The alcohol isn't that detectable in the taste. The body is light to medium with plentiful carbonation. This beer is smooth. The drinkability is very good good. Overall, this is a good beer for the price. I picked up an 18 ounce bottle for 99 cents at a gas station, so if you're looking for a malt liquor, this one is worth a try.

Poured a few ounces into a juice glass for color and smell. The rest was consumed out of the bottle.

A - pale golden yellow with a thin lacing of soft, white head that leaves a thin lacing

S - grains, metal, corn, alcohol

T - grainy, apples, metal, corn, sweet, alcohol

M - warm, crisp, lightly bodied

This is pretty foul. It has a warm, metallic, grainy taste that's incredibly displeasing. I admit that I bought this more for a cheap buzz than anything else, but I'll steer clear in the future.

Pours a pale golden color with a bubbly head. Scent is that of cheap grassy grains. Drinks fine with a sweet, grainy taste but the after taste goes south leaving a chalky, dry finish. Thin in texture and drinks as fast as water. Not something I would buy again, but at least it was an average quality malt liquor that was better than others I have had.

Had this in a can - well, it’s what was available. Aroma is weak, wan and malty. It pours a very uninspiring clear pale yellow; at least the white head is fairly thick. Flavor is malty and a little fruity, actually better than I expected but still not much. Then again, I have been spoiled rotten by craft brews. Texture is smooth but hardly fizzy at all - I’ve drunk soymilk that left more of a tingle. I guess you have to drink swill occasionally so you can better appreciate the real stuff.

My last stop on the bad beer train. Picked up the Blue Bull at a gas station here. Drank straight from the can.

Tastes like summer in college playing beer pong. Overly sweet taste that hides everything but the inevitable drunkenness at the end of the can. Not too much to say. This is pretty typical of malt liquors. I can't think of many redeeming things to say about this one. Aroma is faint, taste is not that great, feel is kind of watery. Overall a middle of the road malt liquor, which is to say stay the hell away.

This beer was the epitome of average. It's got the classic cheap beer taste and not much else. This is what your alcoholic uncle's breath smells like. I'm a fan of that bad beer flavour, but it's not usually what I expect from a malt liquor. I usually expect more corn in a malt liquor and maybe a bit of an alcohol taste. Maybe some unbalanced sweetness. Not here. This was super...duper...average. One good thing was the presence of hops for balance. That's odd, but kinda fun in a beer that often goes hopless. It's also nice to have that "bad beer" taste exacerbated more than most cheap "beers" tend to do (as opposed to malt liquors). I might go for this again if it's plain o' beer I want, but never again if I'm craving a malt liquor. Cuz that's just not what this tastes like.
